The Lost Symbol - Dan Brown (2009)
I got this book out with the intention of reading over Easter. I almost got it finished then, but it was a bit of a monster so my plans didn't quite work out. After Angels and Demons, I didn't really feel like any more Dan Brown, and I was weary of reading this one.
He is a clever man, knows a lot about symbols and Masons, and now Washington DC, all of which was quite interesting. The tough bit, was trying to string a story imbetween all the interesting stuff. At first I enjoyed it, but the second half for me dragged, and seemed to bumble together without a satisfying conclusion. I am never a big fan of the running, explosion, torture, chasing novel. Oh well. 3/5
